Terre d'Ombre Vin de Pays du Mont Caume Mourvedre Blend 2018

A young, fresh, & grippy declassified Bandol. Dark red hue misleading given its medium/ medium light body; Black Currants, nice tannic spine with that grippiness. What a perfect summer red. — 7 days ago

Domaine du Gros' Noré

Bandol Mourvedre Blend Rosé 2020

2020 vintage. Straddles the divide between downright dirty and preciously pretty quite nicely. A little something for all rosé fans. — 3 days ago

Domaine de Triennes

Vin de Pays du Var Cinsault Blend Rosé 2020

Obtained via Zachy’s summer sale lol. Surprisingly pale when poured. Nose is floral cherries, palette is a bit medicinal with like dandelions lol. Medicinal quality slowly dissipates as it comes to room temp 🤔 — 15 days ago

Château Miraval

Côtes de Provence Rosé Blend 2020

Delectable Wine
9.1

Limpid pink. Expressive red berry, orange zest, nectarine and floral aromas show fine definition and a hint of spiciness. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering taut red currant and strawberry flavors that pick up a minerally nuance with air. Smooth and focused on the finish, which lingers with bright, floral- and mineral-driven persistence. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, July 2021)

Domaine Hauvette

Cornaline Les Baux-de-Provence Grenache Blend 2012

This is top notch Provence wine. All the exotic spices of Grenache but with a touch of wilderness as other tasters noted. Dense and concentrated but great minerality and freshness. This is fantastic for the price point but really deserves 8 to 10 years in bottle so you can have it at its best. Great stuff !! — 21 days ago

Cibonne

Cuvée Spéciale Côtes de Provence Tibouren 2013

2013 vintage, recent purchase on sale at Astor. Hard not to say sherry like. On top of the sherry you have raspberry and bazooka gum on the nose but also smells like the ocean a bit. Palette opens up with a ephemeral bit of candied fruit bomb that quickly leads to intense honeyed black licorice and tonic, evolves into a decaying tonka bean finish. Unctuous mouthfeel. Extremely long finish and a journey with every sip. — 17 hours ago

Côtes de Provence Tibouren Rosé

Color is light orange! Clean nose- no heavy scent but some strawberry. In the mouth it’s smooth with a touch of acidity at the end. Strawberry, orange and maybe peach. Medium body (heavy for a Rosé) but nice. Really will pair with a lot of foods! — 4 days ago
